The subtler side of electro

  • Hi, I'm relatively new to electro, only discover it 3 years ago,
    so please forgive my ignorance. :)

    Although I appreciate the harsh / glitch sounding stuff
    as I get older my ears keep wanting more soothing sounds.
    I'm trying to find electro (90's or not) that is a bit deeper, cinematic / atmospheric...,
    sorry I'm not very good with words.

    Here are a few examples of what I have in mind:
    Scarletron - Bad December

    If you could direct me into producers / labels with this kind of sound,
    I'll be eternally grateful.

    Cheers

    You can also find artists with the atmospheric style you are looking for in DJ Xed's legendary "Electric Chill Pill" Mixes.

    Maybe you can enjoy the work of Koan which is very atmospheric breaks with influences from Trance music.
